In celebration of all the firepup meetups this month! I love this version, he is singing his heart out and the audience is feeding him.

We need each other. There is so much work to do and it seems so discouraging at times. We faced a huge disappointment this week with the Attorney General confirmation. People write in the comments about losing hope and not knowing what to do.

To those who are despondent I would hold up news of our victories. Jane and Matt raised a quick $100,000 for Donna Edwards which got the attention of the Washington Post.

In Virginia this week a predicted close race to eject Tom Davis’ wife succeeded 55-45 because of our get out the vote effort, and may in fact drive this very senior Congressman into early retirement; conservative/military Hampton Roads helped us vote in a Democratic State Senate; and it looks like our 13 electoral votes are no longer safe for the Republicans in ’08.

We lost the battle, not the war. Count on taking more hits and having more wounded as this goes on, and let’s take care of each other.
